Doltone House was one of 105 Australian Business Award recipients who were nominated by this national program. The Australian Business Awards honour organisations that demonstrate the core values of business excellence, product excellence, sustainability and commercial success.
The Australian Business Awards are a national awards program recognising the success, innovation and ethics of Australian companies and organisations across all industry sectors. Conducted annually, the awards honour Australia's industry leaders through the acknowledgment of innovative business processes, product development, enterprise, sustainability and overall business success. The Awards also recognise the important social and environmental contributions made by organisations through excellence of service, commitment to their customers, philanthropic ideals, ethical behaviour and environmental sustainability.
Anna Cesarano, Director of Doltone House Darling Island Wharf said of the win: “This award reinforces our commitment to environmental sustainability as a private organisation leading the way aiming to be the greenest venue in Sydney”.
“A comprehensive team of green experts were engaged to ensure the initial modelling took place for the design as required for the credits targeted for a 6 star rating. The entire process was governed to ensure 6 star materials and finishes would comply with the accreditation process.”
What is 6 Star Green Star?
6 Star Green Star Certified Rating (score 75-100) signifies 'World Leadership' in environmentally sustainable design and/or construction.
Green Star covers a number of categories that assess the environmental impact that is a direct consequence of a projects site selection, design, construction and maintenance.
Once all claimed credits in each category are assessed, a percentage score is calculated and Green Star environmental weighting factors are then applied. These environmental weighting factors vary across states and territories to reflect diverse environmental concerns across Australia.
